Most golfers find short courses exactly just that – short. No lingering memories, no challenge. The Pusch Ridge Course at the EL Conquistador Tennis and Golf Resort in Tucson, Arizona is not. The nine hole course has enough attitude as a golf course to equal the two other 18-hole courses at the same golf vacation destination. It is short but is never short on fun, excitement and challenge.
The Pusch Ridge Course of the El Conquistador make up 9 of the 45 holes on the resort, the other two 18-holes being the Conquistador and the Canada courses. Designers of the Pusch Ridge Course, Greg Nash and Jeff Hardin, made optimum use of Tucson’s naturally rugged terrain and desert vegetation to make this short course a long and lasting memory to every golfer. The course is all 2,788 yards from the longest tees, with three sets of tees to accommodate players of various handicaps. Water protects several holes that puts a golfer’s shotmaking skills to a test – but the spectacular view of the mountains on most holes of this golf trip haven will make up for the heartbreak in case of a high score.
A short game at the Pusch Ridge Course of the El Conquistador will not feel short at all. It will make one look forward to playing the other two courses not because it wasn’t satisfying, but because it was enough to make golfers realize the need to step their games up and renew their love for the sport. Golf vacations at the Hilton El Conquistador are made complete by the superb services at the resort facility. Nothing comes short this side of the golfing planet – it’s all fulfilling, all the best and nothing less than that.
